Experienced Trial Attorneys Holding Insurance Companies Accountable for Bad Faith Actions

An insurance policy is a contract between the policyholder and the insurance company. In exchange for payment of premiums, the insurance company agrees to:

  • Provide the coverage described in the policy
  • Act fairly and in good faith towards its policyholders
  • Consider the interests of its policyholders equal to its own interests

If you believe your insurer failed to meet any of its contractual obligations, you need to contact Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP, today. We have been serving California policyholders for 25 years. Our insurance attorneys pursue insurance bad faith litigation on behalf of individuals and businesses involved in coverage disputes. We seek compensation for our clients' financial losses, as well as punitive damages and attorney's fees, when appropriate.

Insurance Bad Faith Takes Many Forms

When an insurance company denies payment of valid claims, unreasonably delays payment, fails to thoroughly investigate or defend an insured's claim, or underpays insurance claims without a good reason, it is said to be acting in bad faith.

We know how to get results in bad faith insurance claim litigation regardless of the type of policy. Just a few examples include:

  • Breach of contract for life, health and disability insurance policies
  • Group disability and health policies covered under ERISA laws.
  • Homeowner property and commercial property insurance claims, including natural disaster insurance claims
  • Business liability policies

Not every denied claim amounts to insurance bad faith. However, when an insurance company acts in an especially outrageous or unreasonable manner, it should be held accountable and may be sued for insurance bad faith. To discuss possible insurance litigation with a member of our experienced legal team please contact Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP, today.
